Pittsburgh event: Marcia Lausen: Design for Democracy

Thursday, October 27, 2005

Free and open to the public at Carnegie Mellon University, Adamson Wing, 136A Baker Hall

Since November of 2000, when a confusing ballot in the state of Florida brought issues of ballot design to national attention, Marcia Lausen has worked on an election reform initiative for Design for Democracy — a national nonprofit organization led by AIGA. What began as a local effort to redesign Chicago’s own butterfly ballot has now expanded to include many of the physical and informational systems used by voters and election officials nationwide. Marcia will share the organization’s latest work along with their struggles and achievements.
